Claim Jumper Cheese Ravioli Parmigiana

Claim Jumper Cheese Ravioli ParmigianaThe Claim Jumper line of frozen foods was extended recently to include this new Cheese Ravioli Parmigiana.

The company was gracious enough to send me a sample inside of a package of dry ice. No sooner did it arrive that I popped it into the microwave and heated that baby up. (It arrived at 11:30am, my time for lunch).

What probably helped score points with me is that the microwave instructions are pretty simple. Just poke the plastic cover with your fork, and nuke for about 6 minutes.

Not like some other brands where you have to lift the plastic half-way, then nuke for 3 minutes, then open up the package of sauce, pour, remove the plastic cover, and nuke for another 3 minutes, then turn half-way, nuke some more... That's too much work.

I'm a big fan of frozen italian food. For some reason, I eat more frozen italian food than italian food made on the spot. So, I kinda have some credibility on this.

This stuff actually does taste good. And not because the company sent me a free sample for review either (well that always helps). But I did find the sauce to be quite delish, on the tangy side, and the raviolis to be quite cheesy. Junk foodies might want to take note that this stuff does come with a fair amount of cheese on top. But I'd advise throwing some extra grated mozzarella on there.

It also has some of those spiral curly-q pasta noodles in there too.

Claim Jumper Cheese Ravioli Parmigiana

This box contains 17oz of saucy cheesy pasta goodness, and it wasn't quite enough for quench my lunch appetite. I think taking it up to 25oz might be closer to what you'd get from visiting a Claim Jumper restaurant and ordering the same thing.

The box says this 17oz contains 2 servings. That just doesn't seem right.

Junk foodies and 24-hour bloggers might do well keeping their freezers stocked with this new offering Claim Jumper. It's easy to make, and goes down really well. It also tastes pretty good too.

You should be able to find these in most grocery stores.
